  • problem, after renaming my forum directory


    I pretty much was expecting this problem to occur, but I've chosen to do it anyway.

    I have just installed Advanced vBulletin and it seems to work ok.

    I have then renamed my main forum folder from "forums" to "forum". My website displays wierd (style missing in Advanced vBulletin Homepage and my Forums page is missing smileys and some other icons). I know that it was a stupid thing to do, but I have decided to stick with "forum" - this link and never change it again.

    How do I fix the things again? The template, icons, etc.

    Sorry for screwing this up. My bad - I should have planned better ahead, before renaming such important folder like "Forums" to "Forum".

    Thanks in advance

    vBAdvanced changes the image paths. You probably need to update them. The image paths are in your:

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> StyleVars (in the menu)

    You might also find some paths for background images in your:

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> Main CSS (in the menu)

    There are also the smilies, avatars, and post icons:

    Admin CP -> Smilies / Avatars / Post Icons

    And the default post icon:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Thread Display Options (showthread) -> Show Default Post Icon

    That is all of the images.

        I have noticed some problems.

        Smileys and some thread icons are now showing. For some reason, it still looks in forums/images... in stead of forum/images..

        Here are some links for the images, that I want to make VB find and display properly:

        Meaning; Where exactly do I define the new path for those images?

          Admin CP -> Post Icons -> Post Icon Manager -> [View] -> [Edit]
